Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of General Surgery Volume 60, Issue 06: Update on Trauma.

The goal of this program is to improve management of traumatic injuries in children and the elderly. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Choose effective surgical techniques for patients with catastrophic blunt abdominal trauma.
2. Determine appropriateness of temporizing injuries and postponing completion of emergency surgery.
3. Apply elective endovascular surgical techniques to patients with vascular trauma.
4. Modify standard trauma techniques to the needs of pediatric patients.
5. Recognize the impact of aging on traumatic injuries and their treatment.

The original programs were presented by Michael D. McGonigal, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgery, University of Minnesota School of Medicine, Minneapolis, and Director of Trauma Services, Regions Hospital, St. Paul, MN, Joseph J. DuBose, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgery, R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, University of Maryland Medical System, Baltimore, and Clay Cothren Burlew, MD, Associate Professor of Surgery, University of Colorado, and Director, Surgical Intensive Care Unit, Denver Health Medical Center, Denver.
